Today was a good day. I wrote a small piece on Belle’s blog to signify my 100 day mark. I mentioned that it was a bit anticlimatic though. No fireworks, no bells, no big congratulatory emails. Just a nice quiet day, feeling very good about myself. I’m a bit relieved to be able to stop counting. I have lots of things to do and don’t want to count any more. I feel like a big vidalia onion that needs the outer skin peeled away.
So that’s what I’m doing…I’m peeling away the skins of an onion. I’ve peeled away the cigarettes and the alcohol, I’ve peeled away the sugar (that was easy for me cuz I don’t like sweets), I’m weaning myself off of the Prozac that I’ve taken more than 20 years, and I’m even dyeing my hair back to it’s natural color! I just want to know what it’s like to really be me. I haven’t known that since I was 14 and who knows themselves at 14 anyway. I really will be a blank canvass. I want to be rid of all mind-altering products. I probably should get off the coffee too (I’ll have to ponder that one).
So on another note. I’ve noticed there are several sober tweeters out there. I had a twitter account with only two people following me. My boss and a local boy who has since passed away from cancer. I don’t want my boss to follow my tweets. I don’t tweet because my name is on there, but I’d love to tweet with sober tweeters. So, I’ve changed my profile photo and my username to @changecoursenow. If you are a tweeter, please find me and tweet me. It certainly would be nice to throw out 140 characters now and then to folks that know something about me.
I made this pie on Sunday. It is the first pie I’ve ever made from scratch (keep in mind I’m 60). Saw the recipe on a new Food TV show called Heartland Table. To my new friend Sharon… Excellent crust, but I think next time I’ll leave out the lemon juice from the blueberry mixture. Isn’t it pretty?
Hugs to you all!
